post #4126 of 6227
So, I used my 40% off coupon to get a Filson Field Satchel. I'm super excited.

Just a reminder to everyone that today is the last day to use your 40% off card if you have one.

Or you can pressure your SA.

If you plan on making a big-ticket purchase, they'll probably give you the 40% off.

No offense, but no one is going to pay you 95% of the value of your Brooks Brothers gift cards.  Why would they go through all that hassle to save 5%?  My advice is to check out one of the websites where people sell such gift cards and see what the going rate is.  I have no clue, but would suspect it is somewhere in the 80-85% range.

You might also try eBay. I've sucessfullly sold a gift card to Banana Republic there before. Still probably can't get near what you want for them esp. after eBay and PayPal fees however.

Is there any consensus whether BB's cordovan belts are better, equal or worse quality than AE's and Alden's?  I need a Color 8 belt and trying to figure out which to buy.

It is being shipped from the catalog so plenty of time to return it, but tentatively used the 40% off coupon on this to replace my current relatively poor fitting blazer: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Regent-Fit-High-Performance-Blazer/MM00235,default,pd.html?green=86F0C308-651D-52CF-B61E-E2C93A7BED54&omnpp=recommended%20items

 

Not a lot of feedback online, and the SA couldn't really get specific on difference between this blazer vs. other navy Regent blazers. Any feedback on if this was a wise use of the coupon?

Not to mention dude had 1 post.  It's like taking a chance on something on the bay from a zero feedback seller based in Russia.

Went to try and use my coupon last night, but couldn't figure out what to get.

Tried on a Madison fit 1818 sports coat and the shoulders looked to wide on a 38 and looked OK on a 36. Tried on the short length for both and they were about 0.5 to 0.75 inches too short in the sleeves. The regular length was just a smidge long in the sleeves, but 3 or 4 inches long in the body.

I did like this one though, but it was not made in the U.S. or Canada and had a ticket pocket:

Also checked out the shoe department, but didn't really fall in love with anything. It was pretty busy and the associates were not interested in ordering shoes for people if they were not in stock.

Also took a look at the belts as a last ditch attempt to use the coupon, but for $60 after coupon, the belt did not feel substantial enough.

I was looking at the same blazer you linked to in the store, but the slanted pockets and flap-less ticket pocket made it odd enough where didn't want to get it as my primary staple-blazer.

Why would anyone pay $474 for a $500 gift card?

Amex is always 10-15% off gift cards and so do the rebate sites. Best you could be looking for is $450 but $400 is probably a more realistic number
